20121023: Netid domain controller (leia) forcible demotion planned ~1pm today

Due to internal AD database corruption on and replication problems it was having, we have determined that we need to demote, one of 5 existing domain controllers providing the NETID domain service in the UWWI service line. Leia has been offline since yesterday evening and won’t be coming back online. You may have experienced odd problems because of Leia’s AD corruption. If you think you’ve got a lingering issue caused by this, please do open a help request via with UWWI somewhere in the subject line, and we’ll try to assist you.


We have already replaced leia as the DNS master for, the DDNS zone provided for delegated OU customers, and there has been no impact to customers of that service.


This work represents a minor degradation in service capacity, but this is expected to be the case only for a short period, as leia was planned to be replaced in the coming months.


If, for some reason, you’ve hard-coded something to, you will want to change that.
